New York City's busty, brazen Queen of the Nightlife offers expert advice on everything from romance and fashion to the art of being a contemporary sex goddess in this outrageous guide for girls. In the tradition of Mae West, Brill has the goods on dates and diets, bras and bathing, clubhopping and trend-setting. Illustrations and photographs throughout.

A self-described "designer/actress/model/author businesswoman," Brill was as much a creation of 1980s excess as leveraged buy-outs. Piles of blond hair, a 39-inch bosom and a genius for self-promotion gave visibility, if not credence, to her claims to be "Queen of the Night," "a contemporary Sex Goddess" and "the babe who's everywhere." Now, in this how-to book, Brill wannabes can learn how to dress like her, flirt like her, push their breasts into shapes like hers, even self-promote like her. If there were a hint of the author's tongue being in her cheek, this book would be a laugh-out-loud satirical riot. Unfortunately, Brill is dead serious. For her, the only reality is what other people think of you; her shallow advice is a particularly revolting manifestation of the "you look marvelous" philosophy that formed the personal counterpart to Wall Street's "greed is good" business credo. Brill seems to have missed the fact that the 1980s are over and the junk bond market has collapsed--or maybe she's just hoping that no such calamity befalls the junk book market. Caveat emptor. Author tour.
